New Servers

News | | March 6th, 2015


We updated the FontStruct servers today. There should be no changes to the way the site works, but hopefully pages will load a little faster than they have done in the past.

If you notice anything strange, let us know, either via the contact page or by commenting on this post.

Thanks and Happy FontStructing!

    You misspelled the word “weird” on the home page. Anyway, it sounds good for someone hugely impatient like me. :)

    I’m mortified! Thanks for pointing that out. Fixed now.

    Strange: I loaded an old fontstruction from 2011, and it loads up with some blank bricks replacing the existing composite ones. I’m uncertain if they were recently replaced, or if something happened long ago. So far, all other fontstructions seem to load properly. Anyone else?

    @geneus1 that isn’t an area where I would expect to see problems from the change in servers. The server where FontStructions are stored is actually the same as before.

    About the next comp… What about Western style fonts?, or Minimum size fonts?, or Only curved fonts?, or Animated fonts?, Extra block fonts?, or Impossible fonts? or…
